My husband and I did this tour as a bucket list activity from America. It was our first time in Italy, and we didn't want to be driving anywhere. Barbara was our tour guide; and she

Very nice tour. Everyday wine tasting coupled with visiting all the lovely places was a delight. Very well planned and well managed. however I noticed that, all the hotel bookings were done in modern hotels. I guess people from all over the world come to visit the history and culture of Tuscany for this tour. If such experience can be attained in the stay as well it will be very nice.

I took this tour with my daughters in July. Maria was our very capable guide.
Our bus could commodity 40, but we were an international group of about half that number, so we each had plenty of room to relax between stops, enjoy the scenery and even nap!
We visited many iconic sites, including Pisa, but the real fun was at the wine tastings! Over the course of our trip, we visited both in town tasting rooms and countryside vineyards for wine and refreshment.
Without this tour I would never have know about the perfect little town of Pienza, unchanged since the 14th century and stunning, or Siena which hosts a citywide horse race annually. We saw the flags of different neighborhoods and even witnessed a parade through the Piazza.
Rough seas did not permit stops at some of the Cinque Terre villages, but we were impressed by the views from the ports we did visit especially in Portovenere.
We even squeezed in a bit of beach time in Monterosso. You can't keep Jersey girls from the beach!
On our final day Mossimo, our driver, did a fantastic job of negotiating the tiny winding roads to the marble fields of Carrara. After holding our breath for the climb up the mountain, we all gave him a well earned ovation. It was worth the journey to see the gloriously white rock being mined and transported down those same terrifying routes.
Our last stop was perhaps our favorite. At Montecarlo di Lucca we visited our final vineyard and were served in an arbor. Not only the wines, but the balsamic vinegar and the olive oils were excellent. We feasted before our drive back to Rome.
Maria helped us with directions to the train station as we departed the bus. She couldn't have been more helpful.
His was a great value and I would most definitely use Viatour again.

Very good itinerary. A full 4 days of the Tuscany area. We loved Sienna and Montepulciano. Cinque Terre was very beautiful. Would have liked to have had more time but too much to see in 4 days. The trip to the Carrara marble mines was an unexpected marvel. All in all, well worth the . Our coach was old and the seat leg room was tight. Thankfully we only had 18 on the trip so all could spread out. Our guide was Marie Consuelo. She knows her history and country very well. However, she's a little detached and was quick to leave us on our own, especially a few times when our group needed a leader. I would still highly recommend the trip in spite of these issues.
